Catching Fire Trailer: The Odds Are Never in Our Favor

Anyone wondering if the Hunger Games films will wind up as dark as the novels need look no further than this trailer for Catching Fire. Bleak, bleak, bleak. A man is beaten. Woody Harrelson's Haymitch has to be serious and sober for a second. Except for bursts of flames, there's not a single shot that isn't all gray and icy. The big takeaway, though? That's Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, folks. This is happening.
